Title: Controversies in Applied Linguistics
Edited By: Barbara Seidlhofer
URL: http://www.oup.com/elt/global/isbn/0-19-437444-0/
Series Title: Oxford Applied Linguistics
Description:

There are several issues in English teaching on which applied linguists take very different positions: e.g. linguistic imperialism, the validity of critical discourse analysis, the pedagogic relevance of corpus descriptions of language, the theoretical bases of second language acquisition research, the nature of applied linguistics itself. This book presents exchanges between scholars arguing different positions, and directs attention to the key points at issue.
